“Snark is a hidden gem connecting Waterline Trail to Bandersnatch, with some narrow and steep sections.”— Torsten Heycke
This trail is a great alternative to the lower part of Bandersnatch and has very little traffic. Bikers seem to try this early in the morning and are seldom seen beyond that. Steep sections may be daunting for some runners in the dry time of year because of the ball bearing like nature of the decomposed granite surface.
This trail is more primitive--narrower and steeper--than most in the area and that is some of its appeal. On the other hand, the poison oak laps at your ankles, so beware.
